Emerging issues in Commonwealth abortion laws, 1982 by Rebecca J Cook( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The following medico-legal recommendations of the 6th Commonwealth Health Ministers Meeting in November 1980 are discussed: 1) countries should provide for a jurisdiction to have at least a "developed" law, either by legislation or through an executive statement, 2) laws relating to approved contraceptive measures should be clearly exempted from the scope of laws relating to abortion, 3) lawful abortion should include at the minimum preservation of life and physical and mental health, 4) abortion services should be rendered by adequately qualified personnel, 5) consideration should be given to accomodating abortion primarily in laws focusing not upon crime and punishment but upon health and welfare, 6) maintain a dialogue between doctors and lawyers on legislation and medical practice, 7) regional groups and their secretariats should support the above activities, 8) the Secretariat should encourage discussion of issues relating to the medical termination of pregnancy at meetings of Health and Law Ministers, and 9) the Secretariat should continue to disseminate information on the legal and medical aspects of abortion, provide technical assistance to governments requesting help, and provide support in this area. Countries which have at least developed their laws are Belize, Seychelles, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, Vanuatu (formerly New Hebrides), and those which have proposed amendments in the abortion law are Barbados, England, Nigeria, and Australia. The authors also discuss the extent to which Commonwealth governments have exempted contraceptives from the scope of laws relating to abortion, how Commonwealth governments have incorporated newer technologies, what these governments have done to enable the delivery of abortion services by qualified personnel, and to which governments have accomodated abortion in laws focusing upon health and welfare. Many member countries recognize that women and men have a right to health care treatment outside the context of crime and punishment

Issues in reproductive health law in the commonwealth by Rebecca J Cook( Book )

3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present report, designed for the 1986 Meetings of Commonwealth Ministers of Law and Health, addresses general issues in Commonwealth reproductive health law. An initial overview of reproductive health services includes consideration of maternal and child mortality and their impact on family life. Succeeding chapters address a variety of legal aspects of contraception, sterilization and abortion. Also addressed are legal aspects of responses to infertility. Prominent issues in contraception include the House of Lords' decision on adolescent access to contraceptive services in the widely discussed English Gillick case, and legal aspects of newer forms of contraception. Sterilization issues include discussion of the growing Commonwealth case law on legal consequences of sterilization failure. Abortion issues include new legislation in Barbados, Bermuda, Ghana and Montserrat and litigation in, for instance, Canada and Australia. Infertility is a growing problem in all parts of the Commonwealth. Causes of infertility are discussed, followed by consideration of legislation and proposals for legislation on human artificial reproduction. The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women is considered to warrant special attention by the audiences addressed in this report. Discussion draws attention to the Commonwealth Secretariat's accession kit developed to facilitate membership in this Convention by Commonwealth countries which have yet to make a legal commitment to its principles and reporting mechanisms. The call for equal access to health including family planning services must be heard by Law Ministers and Health Ministers alike
